The General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect in May 2018. And if you get it wrong there could be serious implications for your organisation.
You’ll need to record all aspects of how your organisation processes personal data: what types of data you capture; where it comes from and how you collect it; how you store it and how long you keep it and who you share it with.
It sounds pretty complicated, and it is. So how do you know where to start?
GDPR Portal is a simple and easy to use website that is going to make the process of dealing with GDPR a whole lot easier.
It will provide your organisation with a record of all aspects of how it processes Personal Data. In the event of an inspection by the Regulator or a legal challenge then your organisation will be able to produce evidence of what it has done to comply with GDPR.
What it’s not for is storing any of the Personal Data that your organisation processes. And GDPR Portal is not designed to provide advice so if you are unsure on any questions, such as Legal Basis for Processing, then you should consult a Data Protection advisor.
GDPR Portal’s comprehensive checklists show you what questions to ask and gives you a place to record your answers. And if someone changes an answer you can see exactly who did it, when they did it and what was changed.
The most important thing with GDPR is to be able to provide evidence to the Regulator, or anyone else who’s asking, of what you’ve done. GDPR Portal will help you prove that you have taken the right steps to comply with GDPR
GDPR Portal has a task management system to help you get through the work that will have to be done to prepare for GDPR. And Review functionality so you can get someone else, maybe your data protection advisor, to check what you’ve done.
And once GDPR comes into effect in May 2018 you’ll be able to use GDPR Portal to keep a record of Subject Requests and Data Breaches and make sure that you have responded to them within the required timescales.
Using GDPR Portal will save you time. We’ve done the hard work to make it easier and quicker for you. And most importantly, you’ll get peace of mind knowing that you’ve done what you need to do to ensure your organisation meets its legal obligations.
If you want more detailed information on GDPR Portal’s functionality then take a look at the Administrator and User guides which can be found on the Resources page.
